27 Weeks Pregnant

I am borrowing this idea from my friend, Melissa.  She did a weekly update during her pregnancy,  and I loved it!

  • Movement: Baby Love is not moving much, and seems to be a bit on the laid back side. Of course, this may change as the wee one grows.
  • Sleep: I get up only once a night. I’m starting to put a pillow under my ever-growing belly. It is getting hard for me to get up from the bed. Actually, it’s getting harder for me to get up from any prone position.
  • What I miss: walking up stairs without getting out-of-breath.
  • Cravings: Nothing really. Oh wait, I’ve recently discovered spray cheese. I can go through a can in a 24-hour period. My co-workers tell me this is nothing to be concerned about…for now.
  • Symptoms: My tummy is getting much bigger. I can still see my feet though. I cry all the time. No matter what Shea and Greg may say, that IS new for me.
  • The belly button: We have been on belly-button watch for a month now. I had seriously doubted my belly button would pop. Prior to pregnancy, it was a bottomless pit. Seriously, my belly button is DEEEEEP. However, I can now see the end of it! It has gone from bottomless pit to moon crater. We are taking bets on when it will pop. It has been moon-crater stage for four weeks now. I’m betting it will not pop until after October 15. Phil thinks much sooner…any time now.
  • Best moment this week: Last Sunday Phil and I worked in the nursery at church. Holding babies made me start dreaming of holding our little one.
  • Biggest challenge this week: I am facing my fears over being a mom. I worry I will be resentful of losing the life I have now. I happen to love my life just the way it is/was.
  • Size: the last sonogram measured wee one at 1 pound, 10 ounces. That was three weeks ago. A certain website claims the average baby is  about 2 pounds  (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with the legs extended.
  • My next sonogram is Tuesday, September 27.
